poll shows just 23% of likely voters say romney's comments made them think more positively about the candidate. 45% said it made them feel more negatively about mitt romney. romney senior adviser ed gillespie said they are expecting the 47% remark to come up in tomorrow's debate and is prepared to answer it and address it. we believe the voters will see and appreciate the fact that what governor romney's talking about would improve the quality of life for 100% of americans. joining me tonight is msnbc political analyst richard wolffe and host of "now with alex wagner", alex wagner. congratulations on your show. it's really taken off. >> thank you, ed. >> there's damage here. i mean, the polls show it. you can almost feel it. richard, how does he reverse the damage tomorrow night? >> if he's smart, he tries to see the debate as a chance to reintroduce himself to the american people. he blew that opportunity in the conventions, but this isn't a moment for zingers. this is not a moment about landing the punch. no matter how badly you think you want it, you have to take a much more m
at 49% and mitt romney at 47% but among likely voters in the swing states, president obama leads mitt romney by 11 points. 52%-41%. tonight the forecast is president obama will within 320 ele electoral college votes. joining me now is steve and karen. karen, the expectation game has gotten really out of hand this time. finally chris christie, for whatever reason, just kind of gave up and stated the obvious and said well, of course. you know, mitt romney has to be the big winner on this first debate. >> well, i think he was like look, let me keep my credibility in check because he's been watching what has happened to congressman ryan over the course of this campaign. but i think each man has a different thing they need to accomplish. i think for governor romney he needs to have a strong performan performance. it's not just about one performance for him. his problem is a lack of consistency. he's got to have a good wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. every day to the election. if you see him give one good performance and the next day they're off message, it's more of what we've seen

with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically gotten used to the economy as the status quo. >> today in his weekly web address, lynn, the president blaming congress for not helping the economy. take a listen. >> last week, mortgage rates were at historic lows. but instead of helping more and more hard-working families take advantage of those rates, congress was away on break. instead of worrying about you, they'd already gone home to worry about their campaigns. >> lynn, is that a strategy that works? i mean, is there something to what he's arguing, regarding low mortgage rates and housing reform? >> well, he's doing, i believe, a preemptive strike in advance of the debate, where the focus is going to be on domestic issues and the economy. now, what he said is true. ever
the debate. >> greta: do you think that the 21% are likely to be president obama or governor mitt romney voters? 21% that you are talking about? >> a lot of them will be president obama supporters. that's to me, just incredible. you look at inner city. the inner cities of this country are -- for the most part going to be voting for president obam a. yet they have a 50% unmome -- employment rate. you explain that to me. >> sean: >> greta: one thing, i have seen neither candidate go to the inner cities. they go to the swing states, although a loot of swing states have the so-called inner city. but i don't see either candidate talking about the inner cities at all. >> president obama has done nothing for the inner city. so the various inner cities, and there are plenty of them and they are all in trouble. so it's amazing to me how he is getting most of those votes. >> greta: what will have more viewers "the apprentice" or the debate? >> the debates will be amazing. i am going on europe and i postponed it until 12:00 because i want to see the debate. this debate -- and by the way, "the appre
are below 50%. and those 47% comments have certainly taken a toll on mitt romney as well. for people registered voters who were given a full description of those comments, after hearing that full description, 45% had a more negative view of mitt romney. 23%, a more positive view. >> you think the open was too sports centery? >> i liked it. >> good. peter alexander in denver. thanks so much for bringing our debate day power panel. now, we asked all of you in advance for your pointers for each of the candidate and we're going to put those up on the screen as we talk about this. so joy, i want to start with you. let's show the tips you have for governor romney about the type of performance he needs to deliver on. don't try too hard. don't get too snippy. this is a tall order. you are trying to see mitt romney cast that leadership vision and in an area where there's a lot of pressure. >> they telegraph it, romney has these zinger plan, but i think the risk is that he gets too desperate to have a big moment and that he overplays his hand. and if you look back at mitt romney's performance
. got to speak right to the voters. i think ohio, a pretty simple mathematical equation there t, e jobs and the economy. mitt romney has had a hard time doing from the first day of the campaign, connect with people and connect with voters. this it will be interesting tonight. the first time we have seen both men on stage. he will have a chance, the first 30 minutes, when most people are paying attention to really make a difference and really kind of change the direction of this election. he has 30 minutes to do it. i hate to say it comes down to 30 minutes. >> that is the reality of life. people are going to sit down, going to have their watching parties. going to watch it alone, whatever. get your snacks out, your mat nachos. i said that because i'm having nachos while watching t >> me, too. >> you're going to watch it. in 30 minutes, people will reside who is the winner or loser, unless there is a huge moment in the latter part of that debate, chip. >> right, and then what we will do is watch it for 30 minutes, get bored, do something else, finish our nachos, talk about what is doing
, they represent a type of voter or a group of voters would know romney needs. tries to make up ground on the auto bailouts saying that is not exactly what i meant at the time, i was really in line with what played out there, we know it was not but the type of voter or the group of voters in ohio that we have talked so much about, white males in particular, working class, middle class people, they are there in that state. >> well, they are, but take pennsylvania. president obama carried by 11% in '08. >> yeah. >> yet he lost 11-12 southwestern democrat registration counties where that blue collar worker exists. he lost them and carried the state by 11%. add tremendous margin in philadelphia and most importantly, the republican suburbs, which used to be -- i mean, which used to be republican now are trending democrat. the governor romney of 2001, the governor romney governor of massachusetts, would have been a strong contender in the philadelphia suburbs and the cleveland suburbs. the governor romney who ttacked far to the right, like the blunt amendment and say he was for it that romney is going t
voters your campaign solicits will help governor romney at the polls in iowa? >> there is no doubt that when freedom-loving conservatives go to the polls here in iowa, a crucial toss-upstate, those conservatives are not going to vote for obama. they will vote for romney and the other conservatives up and down the ballot. but the main reason we're doing this, it's the right thing to do. iowans were right when they ousted the other three justices. we hope they're savvy enough this time to take a look at wiggins, get through smoke and mirrors of the bar association trying to hold on to power and defend the constitution. >> so bob vander plaats, you just essentially said that this is in fact a wedge issue. you at least conceded that. >> well, what it, there is no doubt it's going to be a ripple effect. i think could benefit conservatives, which i think is a good thing. but the bigger thing is that you're going to hold an activist judge in check. this guy's got a d-minus rating by his own peers, d-minus. >> you know that there are significant number of people in this country that truly
tonight during the first face-off between president obama and mitt romney. voters will be looking to the candidates for less spin and for more of what my next guest calls, quote, blunt new england style honesty. paul wescott joins us now from new hampshire, host of the paul wescott show on wgin. hi, paul. >> good morning. >> do you think the candidates will deliver? >> we all hope so. honestly, it really is about having an honest conversation and making sure that they actually get down to brass tax as opposed to the thousands upon thousands of ads we've been showered with here in the state over the past year. that's really, at the end of the day, what people are looking for, real solutions, ideas and how do we get that back to the state of the country. >> you don't want to hear zingers? >> it's fun for me, i'm a radio talk show host but for voters they're looking for mitt romney to be tough, for the president to be tough. i think at the end of the day they want solutions. >> recent poll shows president obama up a stun ing stunning 15. is that what you're seeing and hearing on the
is that voters want this to be a forward-looking election. that's part of the problem that romney and the rks have had, they want it to be a retrospective referendum on the first term. the voters are looking to see who will be better for the next four years? that pattern seems kind of incredible. >> that said, i can't imagine that romney will bring this up overtly but could he subtly use this in the debate? >> reporter: i don't know. i honestly don't think he's going to go there himself. this is the kind of thing that happens by outside groups or outside activists and the reality is, this is an intensely racially polarized country. barack obama will probably win somewhere around the votes of 80% of all minority voters, growing share of the electorate, but only 40% of white voter. it will be a real challenge after this election to try to bring the country together to govern. he was the first candidate ever to lose white business double digits and win. there is a racial element that is in the backdrop here. not necessarily racism, but very different views about the role of government and very d
voters. president obama leads romney by 7% in that category. you can watch tonight's debate right here on nbc 4. nbc news live team coverage begins at 9:00 tonight and that brings us to our poll question this morning. will you watch tonight's debate? you can let us know by taking the poll on the news 4 today facebook page. >>> president obama appears to have gotten a boost in the battleground state of pennsylvania. a judge there ruled that voters won't have to show photo i.d.s. the decision strikes down the new voter i.d. what you. democrats say the law disenfranchises voters who don't have photo i.d.s. republicans say the law is necessary to crack down on voter fraud. >>> it was this day ten days ago that the beltway snipers terrorized the entire area. over three weeks, they killed a total of ten people. among them, a man who was mowing the lawn at a car dealership. to honor his memory, his sister started raising money to help award scholarships. to date, she's raised homore th $100,000. >> we have to hope for change. and sometimes it's all in our attitude. >> mohammed was executed in
important groups of voters. tomorrow night won't be the first time romney and the president have come face-to-face, but you may be surprised at how seldom they've actually met. and the former speaker of the house, nancy pelosi, she's here in "the situation room" live this hour. i'll ask her about the democrats' chances of taking back control of the house of representatives. i'm wolf blitzer. your in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 35 days until the actual presidential election exactly five weeks from today. here's where the race may be decided. we're getting our first look inside the debate hall over at the university of denver. barack obama and mitt romney, they are getting ready to face-off tomorrow night. and as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta discovered, it will be one of the very two times the two men have actually met in person. jim is joining us live from littleton, colorado. what's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going to be holding
that could decide this election. he leads mitt romney by two percentage points among likely voters nationwide. according to the latest "washington post"/abc news poll. the president leads his republican rival by 11 points among likely voters in swing states. that includes virginia, ohio, and florida. both candidates will spend the next couple of days preparing for their first debate. it takes place wednesday night in november. the president is getting ready in nevada. romney is already in denver. >>> and vp candidate paul ryan will prepare for his debate in virginia as well. the republican congressman will hold a three-day camp starting on wednesday. it is still unknown where he'll be exactly in the state for his debate prep. as for vice president joe biden, he's using maryland representative chris van holland to stand in as ryan. the vp debate is set for october 11th in kentucky. >>> today the supreme court's new session begins. the nine justices will rule on several key cases, including where race should be a factor in college admissions. the court will also decide whether to curtail parts
. in ohio, 58% of likely voters think that romney favors the rich and just 9% think he faves the middle class. 1% thinks he favors the poor. what do you think that all means? >> i think -- first of all i think the number is pretty staggering. my historical memory and understanding is that no republican has won the presidential election without winning ohio but i think again there is a sense that this candidate has little empathy to no empathy for the working poor, the working families of this country and we're seeing it reflected in not only the ohio poll you cited but in many of the swing state polls. >> jennifer: absolutely. katrina, you're so sharp. katrina vanden heuvel, editor of the "nation" magazine. later, brett ehrlich has found the absolute least flattering photo on facebook. >> coming up, you thought facebook photoless made you look bad? wait until you see what virginia did to the president. don't go away. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me
extremely tight. the president leads mitt romney by 3% among likely voters. the poll's margin of error is 3.1%. so that puts the race in a virtual tie. the president led his republican rival by five percentage points two weeks ago. he has a much wider lead in you consider registered voters. president obama leads romney by 7% in that category. >>> mitt romney's campaign hoping to get a boost from comments vice president joe biden made yesterday. biden warned supporters in north carolina that romney and his running mate paul ryan would raise taxes on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> of course the middle class has been buried. they're being bear rayed by regulations, by taxes, by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> vice president biden later tried to clarify his comments by saying the middle class was b e buried by policies mitt romney and paul ryan supported. you came watch the debate right here on nbc 4. live team coverage begins at 9:00 tonight. and that brings
of voters that you are talking about, mr. romney, in this debate tonight, when you say government is paying too big a role in people's lives. that's a tricky one for him to walk out of. >> are the elderly moochers? he's going to have to answer that question. >> service members on disability? i mean same thing. >> coming on the heels of the romney campaign trying to use joe biden's biden-esque turn of phrase the middle class has been buried and you know, biden has walked that back, you know, is it an indictment of the president? look if you're going to fight for the ground on the middle class i don't know that joe biden is the person you want to be sparring against. >> he is by far the best middle class, working-class figure in this race. but to me, the hannity, drudge, obama thing, the ryan thing, i mean, really? this is all they got? i mean, i found the -- i found nothing that obama said in that speech objectionable or disagreeable, similarly, i find ryan's thing not -- i mean there's a sophisticated and legitimate argument to be made about, you know, entitlement and size of government and
. republicans too seeking favor with latino voters. craig romney. the candidates' spanish speaking son on one of the many trips by the candidate, his family and surrogates all descending on nevada. obama, first lady and their surrogates doing the same, a massive effort on bothides for nevada's 6 electoral votes. >> that's why you saw my dad here friday, my mom here yesterday, we have got, you know, this is -- this state is very important to us as are many other states across the country. but this election is going to come down to just a handful of votes probably in the entire country. >> are you registered to vote? >> reporter: registering latinos, a priority where the margin of victory could be razor thin. you've been out here how long today? >> today, like five hours. >> reporter: five hours. how many people have you gotten to register? >> six people. >> reporter: that's about -- that's not very good, is it? >> i know. >> reporter: the growing latino population decisive here in nevada and across the country, if only it voted. >> the latino voter is in a sense an untapped resource in many in
voters this will be his chance to cut through the noise and speak directly to voters. >> governor romney down at least in nine recent swing state polls. most regard wednesday's debate at his last best chance to win over voters. how is his message or perhaps even his tone. how is it going to be different wednesday than what we've seen and heard so far? >> look, i mean i think he's going to get a chance to speak directly to voters. he's going to talk about this is a clear choice in this election. do people want a romney/ryan ticket that is going to look to create prosperity and jobs and upward mobility for americans? or do they want more of the past four years that they have seen, which hasn't been very bright and it's been obama's failed economic policies that haven't been working. so i think this is great opportunity for governor romney to outline his plans. i don't think wednesday is a make-or-break night. i think he'll do great and i think you'll see the numbers in the polls tighten. >> i want to call your attention to some critics of the campaign on the right and the left. on fox news
romney because voters -- >> voters don't have the kind of negatives. he did not have 51% of people having an unfavorable view. secondly, you could say mitt romney is as good a debater all you want. gipper against mitt romney when it comes to charm, people saying i want to have this guy on television for four years, it's no contest. >> willie, following up on what mike barnicle said, the one thing mitt romney has going for him is who he is running against. there are a lot of republicans that voted for barack obama that are disappointed. there are a lot of independents that voted for obama who are disappointed. there are a lot of conservatives who don't want to vote for them this year. they just don't. that we've seen over the past month, a lot of bumbling inside the romney camp. if he turns that corner, just like reagan did in 1980, mitt romney can give all of these voters an excuse to vote for him, right? >> yeah, we talked about this yesterday on the show. if he can go in -- that's why i worry about all this talk about zingers, just stylistically. don't be someone you're not. don't come
% of the voters. romney is trailing by 15 points in the recent of several surveys among women. today we went to find out what women in colorado are saying about the issues and about this race. >> obama's policies are making it harder on women. the poverty rate for women, highest in 17 years. >> when it comes to environment, it's a clear choice. i'm voter for president obama. >> it's a clear choice. no secret, one day before the first debate, both campaigns are focusing op women voters. especially here in colorado. >> we want to know that america is going to be okay. >> diana is a hair stylist who will soon own her own business. she says she is still not sure who will get her vote. >> i'm still trying to figure it out. i do a lot of research. i read a lot. i want to make sure i pick the best candidate. i don't want to go by hearsay or what everybody else is doing. >> she see dark economic clouds on the horizon. >> people are afraid of losing social security, and benefits. it's hard. it's hard to feel safe right now. >> with me with politics how is the economy looking? how is the economy doing
unlike the plan that governor romney put forth. amy, what do you think voters are thinking about in terms of the health care debate? >> i think mitt romney has it right in the sense that obama care is unpopular. pieces of it might be popular, but mitt romney's been campaigning that he would repeal obama care and replace it with pieces that are popular, but this whole idea about social issues i think is so fascinating and underreported that really it's the obama campaign and the democratic party that has tried to make this a social issues election. even turning questions of taxation into a question of fairness, not one of fiscal responsibility or sobriety because at the president himself said, you don't raise taxes in a recession, and we're still certainly struggling along in this economy. so taxation has been turned into a social issue. we saw in the mid-term election that 31% of gay men and women actually voted for the gop so. what did you see at the democratic convention? gay marriage being touted. finally, on women's issues. if you were to listen to the democratic party, apparently the
. >> reporter: jim, it's the first face-to-face meeting between barack obama and mitt romney in nearly five years. the first is domestic matters and the economy. at this time tomorrow night, it will all be over left to the pun dants and the voters. >> home of the pioneers, the university of denver plays home to sparring contenders of the political kind. final touches were put on the debate today where in less than 24 hours, potential gaps and zingers could fly. president obama took a break and visited the hoover dam. mitt romney took time out for a buritto bowl. and romney may have gotten zinger help from an unlikely ally today. vice president joe biden campaigning in north carolina. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify it? >> reporter: republicans pounced. >> we agreed. we need to elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: in person absentee voting is already under way. early voeting going only in other states. both sides know tomorrow's debate could be the last one so
. because of the president's advantages with minority voters and young voters, romney has always needed to perform well with economically anxious whites and above all with noncollege educated and has been underperforming. how does he tonight turn that around? >> well, this is really one of the very first times he gets in an unfettered way to be able to explain that he's not there to try to do what that gentleman suggests but there to create opportunity and move the entire country forward. that's why he's running. i've been to more than 100 events in small private settings, bigger halls. i have to tell you, he does connect with people, he has a vision about this country, he's about competency and making this country move forward, the economics of this country, getting people back to work. that's what i think he'll be abe to share against the president in a way sharing a vision for the country and, you know, challenging the president's record. >> george will in "the washington post" has this op-ed, and essentially he says he thinks president obama is ahead because he's black and says inst
, mitt romney will have the last word. romney ran the gauntlet during the primary. he did 23 debates. the president has practiced five mock debates before tonight and it's not too late to convince voters, there's a new poll, florida and virginia virtually tied. in ohio, the president has a comfortable seven-point lead. last night, conservatives started circulating this video. a 2007 speech that then senator obama gave at hampton university, criticizing the federal response to hurricane katrina. >> people ask me whether they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. well, no, this information was color blind in its incompetence. >> in north carolina, joe biden went off script and said the middle class has been buried the last four years. this morning, they've turned a clip into a web video. >> the middle class in america is hurting. >> middle class has been buried the last four years. >> let me bring in dan rather, anchor and editor of dan rather reports and national journal's white house correspondent. good morning. let's address that video right off the bat. robert gibbs
the message has not gotten through as effectively as it could, so far, is that your fault? the romney campaign's fault or the voters fault. >> look, i think the president has done an effective job at trying to confuse the issue and disrupt positions an distract people, but, at the end of the day i don't think that will work. >> chris: any responsibility... >> look, we are going to prosecute the campaign, in the way that we have always planned, we'll give the country a very clear choice. you want stagnation and dependency, growth or opportunity and so, we are offering those specifics. the problem, we have had, is, nobody knows all the specifics we put out there and the plans -- a five-point plan for a stronger middle class and not everybody knows we have the solutions that will give people better job security. >> chris: let's talk specifics. >> president barack obama: no matter how many times they tell you they are going to talk specifics, really soon... they don't do it! and, the reason is, because the math doesn't work. >> chris: you are the master of the budget, briefly, let's go through the
